Let me lay my elbows or thumbs into your awaiting release.
Trigger Point Massage Therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the client actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort. A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may enhance referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as the satellite trigger point, may even cause pain in the head. Pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. Clients can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from acute and chronic injuries. Similar to some of the techniques in deep tissue work, slow steady and direct pressure applied to the area can be somewhat painful initially but once the muscles have been coaxed into matching its pain threshold, a return to a more natural state of alignment typically follows.
With 365 acupuncture points on the body acting as gateways into your electrical wiring that all help in regulating what we know as functional life. Imagine how powerful that massage treatment will be if those very same points are accessed through good deep steady pressure. Through sensitive hand/elbow it is easy to feel when you’ve tapped into the electrical system. Please understand that I’m not suggesting that you choose massage over acupuncture, of which I am a proponent of acupuncture (e.g., Dr. Shi Cun Wu Shifu has done countless of treatments on me based on the principles of TaiJi, Acupuncture, Tui Na Massage, Qi Gong and Herbs). Imagine ALL Of That Knowledge and Wisdom being transferred into me through his style of treatment. I have been Shifu’s student for 20 years and he has absolutely assisted in the development of this rare and unique style. Now put these modalities that I have learned together and you truly step into the gates of healing. I guess I’ll learn Acupuncture and Herbs in the next life times.
So that brings us back to Trigger Point Therapy!
